iran's nuclear program and the uphill battle facing the obama administration. ever since foreign ministers closed the nuclear deal with iran, ten days ago, the obama administration has been trying to win over a skeptical congress and stave off new sanctions. today, wendy sherman, the lead u.s. negotiator in geneva, held a closed briefing today for members of the house. republican trent franks of arizona is among the lawmakers who have called the agreement a bad deal. >> seems like there's general notion that we're afraid to allow iran to question our sincerity when we should be questioning theirs. iran has given no concession of any kind for 30 years. and yet we are now taking some of our most powerful inducements off the table. >> ifill: michigan democrat dan kildee was milder in his criticism, but he said the u.s. has to proceed very carefully. >> we have to be very cautious with this state, and very skeptical and realize that the reason that we're in the position we're in right now, is that the sanctions are working, and the sanctions need to be not just seen only as a penalt

with prime minister netanyahu almost daily and i think both president obama and secretary kerry gave prime minister netanyahu their assurances that israeli will be involved in these scheduletations on how to get this comprehensive deal with iran. the threat, israeli threat of a military strike to go after iran's nuclear program is still out there. obviously, they don't want to do that, so they want to make sure israeli is comfortable with any ultimate deal. >> let's move on here dealing with kerry's only mission on this trip is not that. he is tying kick-start peace talks between the israeli and palestinians. how is that going? >> reporter: this is his ninth trip, secretary kerry, to the israeli and palestinian territory. in july you remember he gave the israelis and palestinians a nine-month deadline to reach a peace deal. we are about four months in so the clock is ticking and i think it's fair to say there is little progress. today, general john allen who has been working with contrary on israeli security issues, will present some detailed ideas on how israeli security needs, particular
obama has, second term presidents turn abroad to get things done. there's an awful lot done on the agenda particularly with iran and the wider middle east. >> what about that call of the middle east, american involvement with iran, as minimal as it is and it's going to grow one way or another, what happens there? >> well i think this is the making or breaking of the obama presidency in terms of foreign policy. so, the next six months are going to be absolutely crucial. it's a temporary agreement and there's going to be a question of whether iran can be trusted and take tot the next stage. >> what about afghanistan? many of us in this country expect over the next 12 months or so, that would effectively end or a deal to keep some troops on. when america leaves what will that mean for the country? >> there needs deal. it's a bad thing president karzai is playing politics with this and not getting on and doing it. it is crucial. there's an election in afghanistan next year. the question will be is there enough credibility in that election to keep the security situation under con
